    Loved this book!

    Briar has known for some tome that she is under the threat from a prophecy, and her parents send her to the Grimm Academy to try and beat it. She doesnt really believe it - until things start happening that comvince her that it must be true - so she has two aims - to beat the prophecy, and to convince her father to make her Crown Princess so that she doesnt have to marry another Prince to inherit the kingdom. Will Rapunzel, Gavin and Walter succeed in helping her? What part does Ara play in the scheme of things? Loved this twisted version of Sleeping Beauty!

    Fantastic Retelling of a Fairytale!

    Spindles And Spells is the retelling of Sleeping Beauty starring HRH Briar Rose. With other well known fairytale characters such as Rapunzel, (King) Arthur, and Ella (Cinderella), the students at Grimm Academy are there to break their prophecies, what we consider their story. As this book begins, Briar Rose agrees to attend the Academy to appease her father, the King. Ella is not the son he wanted, but she knows she can rise to his expectations and rule their Kingdom someday. Briar aims to learn all that she can at Grimm Academy and refuses to get caught up in the hype over the prophecies. Briar does not believe in them and refuses to allow it to manipulate her. The first student she meets is Rapunzel, who soon becomes her BFF along with Ella and Marigold. Briar soon falls for Walter, and along with Rapunzel and her beau, Gavin, they fall into a bit of an adventure protecting and then saving Briar. The Grimm Academy Series is an excellent series for young people who are familiar with the classic fairytales that the characters attending the school represent. Each character is very well developed, and there is obvious room for maturity. Briar is an intelligent, fair-minded, and kind person. Rapunzel is wise, loyal, and compassionate. Together these two will do quite well as future leaders. With Walter and Gavin by their sides, they can accomplish much. I hope there will be more tales to come involving these couples. The next book in the series is a retelling of Cinderella; rather, Ella's story. I look forward to it as the end of the ball gave hints as to what she may be facing. However, with her friends there to support and protect her, Ella will survive her prophecy, I hope. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Really Enjoyable Take On Fairy Tales

    Briar didn't want to go to the academy at first. She doesn't believe in the prophecy that all. Her father states he will make her heir if she goes. She meets her student guide, her name is Rapunzel. They become fast friends. She is finds she is enjoying being there and making friends. A boy comes to introduce himself. She is drawn to him and how charming and nice he is. Briar finds a note in her room, stating that she is now a student guide. She goes to meet the new student right away. The new student has Briar on egde. She talks herself out of it. The more she is around her, the worst it is. Briar is having a hard time with her prophecy, she will need to enlist the help of her friends and others to help her Enjoy the ride in this book as Briar goes to school learns more about herself and her prophecy. She will have to rely on herself and others to help her. But will that be enough to break it or will she succumb to the curse. I recommend reading this book, there is more I didn't write about, you will enjoy it. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
